ZD 3050 which firmware version to use

When I go to the downloads page for the 3000 it says Recommended Firmware:ZD3000 9.8.3.0.14 but ZD3000 9.12.1.0.148 is listed as the latest available. Why the difference?

i think lack of website updates..
in the interim you should check with support team on what would be greatest firmware for your deployment keeping in mind not just controller hardware, but also AP etc..

9.8 MR3 is considered to be most stable, and 9.12 MR1 patch 1 is bleeding edge with new features and enhancements, therefore Ruckus will always recommend that you use what is considered to be the most stable release so you get the best experience

Note: All fixes that are in 9.12 MR1 patch 1 are also in 9.8.MR3.

Thanks Sean that makes sense. I will stick with 9.8 for now.

As AlphaDog states, definitely check AP support. We have to stick with 9.8.3.0.14 because it is the last firmware that supports the ZF7962 AP. However, it is missing some fixes that are said to be in the later versions.

Yes, to the above.  9.8.3 is recommended due to the number of existing Legacy model APs in use.

Always check the Release Notes for the firmware version you consider upgrading to, to be sure
that all your AP models are supported.

The need for new feature/functions often drives the upgrade decision.
